Property conditions & facilities

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service
AND THEY WOULD NOT SO MUCH AS CREDIT US FOR ONE NIGHT'S STAY. The Aramark (who manage the lodge) bus service drug their feet getting (slow to leave, many stops) to the airport and we were denied boarding on the last (only?) flight of the day by Alaska Airlines who repeatedly said they told the lodge to get the bus their on time. As a result we spent $420 for a puddle jumper to Junuea. The hotel gen manager "Jeff" would not so much as offer us a credit for our hotel stay. Every time I called (6 times) he kept saying he was seeking credit from Alaska Airlines before he could credit us, where it was clearly the hotel's fault for not getting us to the airport on time. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THEIR MANAGEMENT!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
comfortable hotel
Very close to the beach. Beautiful surroundings. comfortable interiors. Did not have any soap in our room. When called the front desk " I think we ran out" was the response.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Lodge in the National Park
Good for a two days stay if joining the Boat tour and taking the Alaskan Marine Highway between Juneau and Gustavus.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Great place to do Glacier Bay
I researched a number of Inns and Lodges in Gustavus, Alaska. All had pluses and minuses. Glacier Bay Lodge overlooks Bartlett Cove so the scenery has a quiet beauty. You can put your feet up on the deck and snack or have an afternoon beverage and take in the quiet and beauty of the place. The food selections are relatively limited but well presented and very tasty. The access to the trails in the forests around the lodge made it a great opportunity for a spur of the moment walk or adventure hike. There are hourly shuttles (free) into Gustavus. There are shuttles (free) to and from the airport and Gustavus pier. The rooms are clean and comfortable and are scattered on boardwalks adjacent to the Lodge building. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There is no TV or cell service (a blessing) and the wifi is slow and takes on the relaxed atmosphere of the life at Glacier Bay. Our 4 nioght 5 day stay was a treasure to be remembered

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness
It's a very rustic hotel
In Gustavus there isn't much of a choice for lodging. If you are looking for wilderness, remoteness and to unconnect from the outside world then this is the place for you. They have very limited wireless and no tv's in the room. Your cell phone won't work there at all.
